New charges filed against Lebanon pediatrician after new victims emerge

BOONE COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) — New charges have been filed against a Lebanon pediatrician after new victims have come forward.

Dr. Jonathon Cavins, 41, was arrested last week after being accused of fondling a 12-year-old patient during a routine physical at Witham Health Services Pediatrics. He was arrested on one charge of child molestation, a level four felony.

He now faces additional charges of sexual misconduct with a minor and vicarious sexual gratification. 

The Lebanon Police Department says two more victims have come forward. Both victims were 15 or younger at the time of the incident, according to police.

Police are asking parents with children that were patients of Cavins to speak to their children and ask if anything “unusual or uncomfortable” took place during an appointment.
